Postal Redux, an HD remaster of the now 23-year-old twin-stick shooter, is set to launch on Switch next month. This is the first time that any game from the franchise has appeared on console.
Said to be “more than just a remaster”, Postal Redux includes new levels and a challenging new gameplay mode called Rampage. Redux first launched on Steam back in 2016 generating ‘very positive’ user reviews.
With the new powerful addition of Rampage, POSTAL fans will go wild. The outrageous single-player game play mode rewards an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a score and letter grade following the completion of each level. Rampage Mode will incentivize gamers to replay levels using different strategies to increase their score. Rampage gives gamers endless hours of fun, with its addictive and re-playable gameplay.
Postal is a series known for its controversy; back in 2004, it was reported that New Zealand banned Postal 2, threatening fines for anyone who owned a copy, nevermind those who actually sold the thing. The controversy mostly centred around its high levels of violent gameplay.
The game will be available for $9.99 on the Switch eShop and will launch on 16th October.
Do you think you’ll be giving this one a go? Let us know with a comment below.
Ryan can list the first 151 Pokémon all in order off by heart – a feat he calls his ‘party trick’ despite being such an introvert that he’d never be found anywhere near a party. He’d much rather just have a night in with Mario Kart and a pizza, and we can’t say we blame him.
Certainly will buy it. I’m a big fan of the original Postal, and know i will give the remaster a go.
The first one isn’t terrible, 2 is terrible but so awful it kinda is playable and the third is an absolute dumpster fire. Whoever thought we would get it on a Nintendo console though.
Pls release Postal 2 on the Switch! Then Postal 4 when it comes out! We don’t talk about postal 3…
Loved the first 2 back in the day when I was an adjusted goth kid. Luckily I grew up. Now I’m old.
While I would prefer Postal 2 (watching Civvies Pro Postal series was immense fun) I understand limitations with the engine on that one so I am happy with this at least.
Amazing to see that this was considered controversial back on release considering the plethora of violence based games we have these days, some designed to revel in it. Nowadays it is more anything sexual is a no-no to certain western groups.
They should have released it on Nov 3rd in the US, we could play it while we watch real life events mimic it outside our windows.
The original is a pretty fun game with some nice art from what I remember. all the others looked awful to me so I never bothered. This is cool news.
Meh, I’m more interested in the Rise of the Triad remaster 3D Realms is working on.
This is like the weirdest game that can come to Switch – so angry and violent. Basically, it completely goes against anything that Nintendo stands for. Never in a million years I’d imagine that I will be playing Postal on my Switch. And you know what? – this is awesome!!! Bring on the second one, please!!!
Wasn’t this game also banned from the Android app store?
Good to see that it’s going to be released on Switch and Nintendo is not censuring it.
BTW, not related to the post but, currently, Bulletstorm is 75% off on eShop.
I’ve never played it before and can certainly say that this game is amazingly fun.
At this price is a real bargain.
